Chris Dzadovsky: Fix the Plumbing Once and FOR ALL

Chris Dzadovsky, St Lucie County Commissioner, has been talking about clean water for a long time.

He works hard for all of us. In his eight years in office as Commissioner  he has fought through a severe recession and worked to ensure that St. Lucie County remained financially solvent, while continuing to provide the important services our residents and visitors expect and deserve.

Chris’s dedication to a healthy and safe environment is well-known. He is the Secretary of the Indian River Lagoon National Estuary Program Council, where he fights tirelessly for a clean and sustainable lagoon system.

Here he is speaking at a press conference last week with Fishing Guides, business owners, realtors, and County Commissioners at the River Walk in Stuart, Florida who have been impacted by discharges and demanded  STATE lawmakers do the right thing: Use Amendment 1 money to purchase land South of Lake O to clean and send water south to the Everglades.

He also serves on the Land Acquisition Selection Committee, which advises the Board of County Commissioners on appropriate land purchases, under the voter-approved preservation and conservation programs. Over 10,000 acres have been purchased through matching grants, totaling a value of over $70 million for St. Lucie County citizens and visitors alike.

In addition to his official county committees, Chris leads many volunteer neighborhood clean-up programs. He is a founding member of the Sea-Life Habitat Improvement Project (SHIP), which holds the annual Oysterfest event and donates to oyster bed restoration projects. SHIP has also raised funds to bring a future artificial reef for sinking off-shore as a habitat for off-shore fisheries, with an added benefit of increasing fishing and diving tourism to St. Lucie County.

Chris has received the Outstanding Environmental Services Award from the St. Lucie County Conservation Alliance in 2010, as well as the United States Green Building Council Treasure Coast Chapter’s Outstanding Green Elected Official Award in 2012. He has served as the President and founding member of the Solar and Energy Loan Fund of St. Lucie County (SELF).
